Valerio Adami

Valerio Adami(1935) is an Italian artist. His artistic research comes from the intense existential parable: the great traveler, the scholar and the book-lover. Adami was born in Bologna and in the ‘50s he was studying in the Brera Fine Arts Academy along with Achille Funi. He has been living for many years in Monte Carlo, Paris and Meina at the Lake Maggiore. Over the years, Adami had several significant for his work meetings: as a young artist with Ezra Pound and Oskar Kokoschka in Venezia, and later with the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, who has written a book about his work, and with whom had a very important relation based on the intellectual exchange. Currently he lives and work in Italy and France.
